p.3 Returned - John Newman, who was believed to have been lost on the Maggie Hunter on the 10th of October, and for whose body a reward of $20 was offered, has returned home to the great joy of his friends, and who of course believed him lost. It appears that he was rusticating at Gananoque, and was unaware that his friends were anxious about his safety.

Marine Notes

The Lake Trade - The unusual activity awakened in the lake carrying trade several weeks since, caused by the startling war rumors from Europe, has apparently died out and a dull feeling is again beginning to pervade all branches of shipping. It was thought that the favourable rates offered for carrying grain to the lower lake points would continue until the close of the season, and in view of this favorable prospect a number of vessels which had lain idle at this port during the past two years commenced fitting out. The propeller lines had expected to keep all their boats running as late as the weather would permit, but it now seems probable that a number of the larger ones will be laid up at Buffalo on their arrival there. It is understood that the three iron boats of the Anchor Line will make no more trips this season, which is also the case with several boats in the Union and Western lines. On the first intimation of an increase in the rates the Northern Transit company decided to place all their lower lake propellers on the line between this city and Ogdensburg, and it is understood a portion of the fleet at least will come here to load. The propellers Lowell, City of New York, Milwaukee, and others, are reported now on their way to this port. There has been no further increase in the lumber rates from this port during the past week, although it was presumed that still higher rates would be offered before the close of the season.
